Elite Level Fire Damage Restoration in New Hope, TX

Fire damage to your home is one of the most traumatizing, frightening tragedies a person can experience. This is especially true in apartment buildings and multifamily homes, where dozens if not hundreds of families are affected by fire and smoke damage. When a fire rips through an apartment building, the property damage can be catastrophic. But the damage caused by fires doesn't end once the flames have been extinguished. Victims are left wondering what happens next now that their belongings are destroyed. When will they have a roof over their again?

In these circumstances, prompt, purpose-driven fire damage restoration is key to reducing victims' financial and emotional strain.

Fire Damage Restoration for Apartment Buildings in New Hope, TX

Owners and managers of apartment complexes know that the safety of their tenants is a major responsibility. Unfortunately, nobody can completely control when apartment fires occur. Fires in apartments and multifamily buildings may start small, but they spread quickly, often destroying several living spaces. These frightening fires destroy prized heirlooms, important documents, and can even be fatal. However, the work is only beginning once the fire is put out and lives are saved.

In the aftermath of a disaster, figuring out the next steps is hard. During this difficult time, it's important to be prepared. As a property manager or owner, having a fire damage restoration company on your checklist of resources is crucial.

Unlike residential fires, apartment and multifamily building fires add several more layers of complexity and stress. In these situations, you deserve a restoration partner that you can trust without question, and that company is Atlas National Renovations.

 Renovations New Hope, TX

Because every property is different, each fire restoration project for apartment buildings is too. However, every fire disaster will have a similar process and will often include:

Contact ANS

Your fire restoration process begins when you call our headquarters. Our specialist will ask you a series of questions about the fire event that occurred. That way, we can arrive on-site with the proper resources and equipment.

Fire Damage Assessment
and Inspection

Our fire damage restoration team will carefully inspect the entirety of your apartment complex, from building to building and room to room. We do so to determine the extent of your apartment's fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a comprehensive restoration plan.

Board-Up Services

First responders like firefighters must break windows and cut holes in roofs to slow fire growth and save lives. Once the fire is out, our team can get to work, boarding up holes and constructing temporary fencing around the property.

Water Removal

If there is water damage associated with your apartment fire, we'll remove most of the water immediately. From there, we use air movers and dehumidifiers to help complete the drying process.

Smoke and Soot Removal

Within minutes of a fire, walls, electronics, and other surfaces are covered in soot. Smoke and ash continue to cause damage to every inch of your apartment building. That's why ANS uses specialized equipment to remediate smoke damage and remove odors. This process is often labor-intensive and can take time, especially for large fire damage restoration needs.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

Using a variety of restoration and cleaning techniques, our team will help clean restorable items and sanitize units for safety.


Getting your apartment buildings to their pre-fire conditions is our ultimate goal. Depending on the size and scope of the fire restoration job, minor repairs like painting, drywall replacement, and new carpet installation might be needed. You might also need major structural renovations like re-siding, re-roofing, new window installation, floor replacement, and more.

Tips for Preventing Apartment Fires

If you're a property manager or own multifamily residential buildings, the thought of an apartment fire is terrifying. What starts as a small fire can quickly turn into a catastrophic event, with your entire complex up in flames. However, one of the best ways of preventing these fires is to know more about them.

Share these tips with tenants to help prevent deadly apartment fires:

Turn Off Heat Sources

Turn Off Heat Sources

Data shows that a large number of apartment fires begin with cooking. Often, these fires are caused by the ignition of common items like rags, curtains, wallpapers, and bags. Encourage tenants to keep their kitchens and cooking areas clear of combustibles. Never leave a stove unattended for long, and don't leave burners on by themselves. Unintentional mishaps like leaving heat sources on are common causes of fires that can be prevented with a little forethought.

Electrical Safety

Electrical Safety

Like heat sources, electrical malfunctions are also common causes of fires in apartment complexes. It's hard to prevent all electrical malfunctions, but you can tell tenants to avoid bad habits. Tips include never using extension cords as permanent solutions and never using a cable if the third prong is missing.

Appliance Safety

Appliance Safety

Appliances are a part of everyone's lives. They're also standard equipment in most apartment units. But if tenants don't take proper precautions, these useful tools can spark deadly fires.

Tips for Preventing Apartment Fires

No matter how large or small, fires are nightmare scenarios for entrepreneurs with commercial properties. Fire damage can completely ruin storefronts and offices, leaving charred remains and burned-up files before firefighters arrive. To make matters worse, soot and smoke damage ruin your businesses' furniture, HVAC system, carpet, walls, and windows.

To eliminate health hazards and restore your business to its pre-fire condition, you need to bring in a team of professionals with years of experience in fire damage remediation. At ANR, we use commercial-grade equipment and cutting-edge tools to clean up the aftermath of your fire and rebuild your property. That way, you can get back to running your business and providing for your family.

Hollywood, Texas? Mansfield is ready to make it happen with new studio

Just south of the Tarrant County portion of the city, Mansfield is preparing to install a massive new addition in a move the mayor called a big step toward the community’s long-term goal of being an entertainment destination. And it’s coming in the form of the film and TV industry.

Angel Gracia says Mansfield, though at first glance an unlikely home for the epicenter of an expansion of the film industry into North Texas, is the perfect location for just that. The brains behind Super Studios Mansfield, Gracia is the director who has plans (and the go-ahead from city leadership) to construct a 72-acre “city in a city” on a piece of land that has been vacant for generations.

Super Studios Mansfield was green lit by the city council Feb. 27. The project, a micro studio with multi-use development attached, is expected by Gracia to be done in about two years, and city leaders are already predicting it could help spur the transformation of Mansfield from a sleepy neighborhood community to a tourist destination.

For Gracia, he hopes to see Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Paramount Plus and Peacock originals using the space, as well as smaller production films and series.

Sound stages, production offices, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, retail, hotels, apartments and even a trade school will all come together to form what Gracia calls “a film studio designed by filmmakers for filmmakers.”

“I don’t say that to be cute,” Gracia told the Star-Telegram. “Film crews always complain about things that we wish were different, so why not do it different ourselves?”

To do that, he said, he spoke to people who work in all different areas of film production. Going to the folks who work in camera, lights, electric, wardrobe, set, post-production and every other department he could think of, Gracia asked industry veterans to make a list of things they wish were different about film studios. And he got answers — from the way lighting is rigged to the placement of set workshops and ramps and doors.

For the city, Mayor Michael Evans said it could be a boon to the hopes of turning Mansfield into a household name for movie and streaming series fans.

“One of the things that we are attempting to build here in Mansfield is an innovative mindset,” Evans said. “We’ve been known for years as a place where we attracted industrial companies and the industrial industry, which is good. We learned, though, a few years ago that in order for you to be a vibrant city, in order for you to be a destination city, you’re going to have to diversify your portfolio.”

Evans said the city is done with attracting industrial developments. It’s now working on bringing the medical, biotechnology, dining and entertainment industry to Mansfield.

“That’s who we want to be,” Evans said.

He wants to see the city become an “innovation corridor.”

Jason Moore, the executive director of the Mansfield Economic Development Corporation, said the city has already heard from other businesses and developers like that who want be neighbors with Super Studios Mansfield. The city is currently looking to bring in a sports stadium, and both he and Evans said it wouldn’t be surprising to see more interest in coming years from others in the film industry.

“I think that Texas has been starving for the very industry that we’re bringing to Mansfield,” Evans said. “ ... Why not Texas have its own movie industry? There’s been a monopoly on the film industry for literally 100 plus years in California.”

Gracia said he was surprised to realize that nobody else had already started development of film studios in Mansfield. It’s in a perfect position, he said. Close to the airport, about 30 minutes from both downtown Fort Worth and Dallas, plenty of lakes, close proximity to diverse landscapes and other places that filmmakers can go when they need to shoot on-scene instead of in the sound stage.

“I pulled my hair out trying to figure out all the negatives because you have to do that and then tackle it,” Gracia said. “To be ready for the storm, for the generator to explode, for the actor to not be in the mood and just not show up.”

As far as location of the studios and the opportunity to make it his own, Gracia said he couldn’t find any problems. Tax incentives could be improved at the state level, but that’s something he expects to see change over time.

Evans said the industry will bring in about 2,000 jobs. Gracia can see that happening, too, especially with the trade school that will be built there.

“It’s something I wish I had when I started off,” Gracia said. “If you’re good with cameras, you should be shooting. If you’re good with designing for wardrobe, you should be in wardrobe. This will teach you how.”

A trade school education is all Gracia figures someone needs to get into the industry, assuming they have opportunities along the way to practice the skills they’re learning and build a reputation.

“I rarely hire someone because of where you graduate,” he said. “I call people you’ve worked with. I want to know your track record.”

By having the trade school on the same property as the studio, students will have opportunities to get work on productions there while getting their education. They’ll also have a pipeline right into the industry through the trade school and Super Studios Mansfield.

With the project’s completion being about two years out, Gracia said it may be a little while before Mansfield sees a migration of full-time film industry workers setting down roots in Mansfield, but it is inevitable. With the proliferation of streaming services, studio space is being booked solid across the nation. In states like Georgia, Louisiana and Nebraska, studios are booked well in advance.

If the studio is quickly successful, as he hopes it will be, he expects workers who specialize in the production phase of filming, like sound, camera and wardrobe specialists, to realize they can buy a home in Mansfield and have steady work through the studios.

As for Gracia, he’s not planning on developing the studios and then selling them off to someone else.

“The idea is to build it and run it, to make it a legacy project,” Gracia said. “Leave the world something.”

With first spring training start, Jacob deGrom takes first step toward delivering on Rangers fans' hope

SURPRISE Ariz. — On Monday morning, the metal bleachers just beyond the chain-link fence behind home plate of the “TX 1” backfield at the shared Texas Rangers/Kansas City Royals complex in Surprise, Arizona, was the hottest … well, I actually don’t know if they make you buy tickets to watch minor-league spring training games.

In 2021, the Rangers lost more than 100 games 10 years after they last played in the World Series. The following offseason, the team committed half a billion dollars to a couple of star shortstops in a striking effort to force a new era. In 2022, they lost 94 games and finished even further back of the first-place Houston Astros. To oversimplify the issue: The Rangers’ rotation allowed more runs than 23 other MLB starting staffs.

Even before the season was over, the team fired its manager and head of baseball operations, elevating former pitcher Chris Young to that role. In the offseason, the Rangers fired two pitching coaches, replacing them with the guy who was their pitching coach when they made the World Series in consecutive years. They convinced a three-time champion manager to come out of retirement.

And they overhauled the rotation.

In a single month, the Rangers agreed to free-agent deals with: Andrew Heaney, a Dodgers reclamation project-turned-starter with the second-most strikeouts per nine innings last year (provided you set the inning cutoff low enough); Nathan Eovaldi, a member of the 2018 champion Red Sox rotation; and Jacob deGrom, the most tantalizingly talented pitcher in the sport.

Combined, those three pitched 246 innings last year, and all are in their 30s, so the health of the entire rotation will determine how far they go in making a difference in the Rangers’ fortunes. But deGrom, in particular, is like a singularly valuable, one-of-a-kind Fabergé egg — if a Fabergé egg could throw a four-seam fastball 99 mph with relative ease.

The Rangers offered deGrom $185 million to provide the team with an unparalleled ace for five seasons. They need him on the mound when the games matter, which in this case meant his not getting on the mound in a game setting for the first month of spring training.

When deGrom arrived at camp with tightness in his left side, the team decided to proceed with the utmost caution. He had debated whether he even needed to tell his new team, seeing as it’s the kind of ailment he would’ve pitched through at a different point in his career.

“And then I was like, ‘What's the smart thing here?’ We got plenty of time. We'll have plenty of time in spring,” deGrom said Monday. “I was trying to play it smart to be healthy.”

So the Rangers waited while he rested — until finally, last week he was able to face teammates in a live batting practice setting, and a few days later, he was ready to make his first start in a Rangers uniform.

Enter the Omaha Storm Chasers.

Video Not Available

Unfortunately, this video is missing or damaged and cannot be played.


The Rangers share a spring training facility with the Royals, and their minor-league players regularly face off on the backfields. For as much as major-league spring training games are more about preparation than competition, minor-league games are an even more controlled environment. Which is why an hour and a half before the bulk of the big-league squad took on the Arizona Diamondbacks, Eovaldi, coming back from his own brief reset for a similar side strain, faced the Royals’ Double-A team while deGrom faced their Triple-A team.

“Biggest game of the year,” said a Royals minor-leaguer who had come to watch.

“You know it,” his teammate replied.

DeGrom threw 24 pitches — 20 strikes — in two innings before decamping to the bullpen mounds. The second batter he faced hit an inside-the-park home run that elicited a grin from the two-time Cy Young award winner.

“Hats off to him,” deGrom said later.

He retired the next six batters in a row, five on strikeouts. After each one, you could hear the crowd collectively exhale in awe and appreciation. (You might think all major-league pitchers look equally nasty up close until you see Jacob deGrom going for the out from just beyond the foul line.)

“Oh, that’s disgusting,” someone said after an unfortunate Storm Chaser nearly spun himself into the ground swinging through a pitch.

After the outing, deGrom reported that he felt fine — great, even. He was particularly pleased to have thrown all four of his pitches and predicted that the changeup and curveball would be plus pitches for him this season.

To deGrom, it had been just like any other game.

“When somebody steps in there,” he said, “I want to get them out.”

For nine years in New York, deGrom was a vessel for Mets fans' hope. He was an All-Star in 2015, when the team went to the World Series but fell short. While he seemed to evolve from there into something superhuman, the team languished in increasingly absurd ineptitude.

When the Mets won 101 games last season with deGrom facing down free agency, it felt like the culmination was coming. He would deliver the city, one that embraced him almost desperately in spite of the fact that he never seemed quite at home there, an iconic victory, an instant classic that would cement his status as the greatest pitcher of his generation. Mets fans don’t need anyone to be reminded of what happened next.

And now he’s here, entering his age-35 season on a new team, still without a ring to his name. Maybe someday, Jacob deGrom will mean something different to Rangers fans, and the city will contain only happy memories for him. His greatness is so evident that it’s easy to want to get ahead of yourself. He looks like a sure thing, a magic bullet on the mound. But guarantees are always a mirage, and so Monday morning on the backfields of Arizona, the Rangers took a very careful first step.

Look, But Don’t Touch Comedy Show, Monday, March 13, 2023

Why does a stand-up comedy show begin at 3:00 pm? Because it’s Austin, TX’s South by Southwest (SXSW) music and film festival time, and this year, they started the fest with a celebration of stand-up comedy courtesy Variety magazine, and awards for Patton Oswalt, Phoebe Robinson, Chelsea Handler and others at The Creek and The Cave. (It’s true – The Creek and The Cave moved from its original digs in New York City to Austin). So, yes, a whole lot of live showcases and panels (to say nothing of the strong tequila drinks) will start early in the day in Austin, including host-producer Rachel McMillen’s event with a local artist who’ll “create a piece of art” on the spot. And what do we, the audience, do about that? Critique? Ogle? Find out, and start your drinking early. Besides, if you want to see any other stand-up and sketch comedy this week in Austin, the clubs are closed for SXSW, so enjoy C+C. The Creek and The Cave, 611 E 7th Street, Austin, TX 78701

Mayor Turner Celebrates Improvements to Forum Park as Part of City's 50/50 Park Partners Initiative

Located in District J, within the Alief-Westwood Complete Community, Forum Park is the third neighborhood park to complete its transformation as part of 50/50 Park Partners, an initiative created by Mayor Sylvester Turner to improve neighborhood parks with the support of the corporate community.

“Complete Communities is about championing the voices of the residents, as is 50/50 Park Partners. I am proud that the upgrades to Forum Park reflect the needs and desires of this Alief-Westwood community. Every neighborhood should have access to quality parks, and I thank our partners for helping to make this shared vision for Houston a reality,” said Mayor Turner.

A total of $1.4 million dollars was allocated for improvements made to Forum Park through 50/50 Park Partners including a new soccer mini-pitch court, a new half basketball court, upgraded park lighting, a new illuminated parking lot, a shade sail for the playground, new sidewalks, new picnic tables, benches, BBQ grills, water fountains, park signage and more. These exiting park features were funded by Memorial Hermann Community Benefit Corporation, Episcopal Health, Texas Children's Hospital and included the support of Houston Dynamo FC, Houston Dash and the U.S. Soccer Foundation.

The mini-pitch was donated by former Dynamo/Dash minority owner Ben Guill, former Dynamo/Dash minority owner Jake Silverstein through the W.J. Silverstein Family Trust, the Houston Dynamo FC and Houston Dash, and the U.S. Soccer Foundation. This mini-pitch is one of 15 that the partners are installing across the Greater Houston area by 2024.

The initiative, rooted in equitably investing in neighborhoods across Houston, includes listening sessions to determine park improvements in collaboration with local communities. All park improvements were selected based on input from each community addressing their desires for improvements to their local parks.

“It is important for neighborhood parks to serve the community’s needs, especially in a city as large and diverse as Houston. Our city is fortunate to have so many great park destinations and we hope all communities consider their neighborhood parks as great places to gather,” said Beth White, President and CEO of Houston Parks Board.

“Neighborhood parks like this one in the Alief-Westwood Complete Community are the backbone of the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, said Kenneth Allen, Director, Houston Parks and Recreation Department.

“The upgrades made to the playground and the additional improvements to the park are a testament to what is possible for neighborhood parks across our city. We want to send a special thanks to the General Services Department and to each of our Park Partners for their work on this project.”

The heart of 50/50 Park Partners is the creation of long-term relationships for sustained impact between businesses, communities, and parks, improving the quality of life for Houstonians for decades to come.

The project is supported by the City of Houston’s Resiliency Office and the Office of Complete Communities. The 50/50 Park Partners framework provides an opportunity for corporations to play a leadership role in supporting neighborhood parks and their surrounding communities, catalyzing the process of reinvigorating an under-resourced park.

“The collaboration between the City of Houston, Houston Parks Board, Houston Parks and Recreation Department, and Houston business leaders demonstrates the sustainable progress that can be made when our communities work together,” said Bob Harvey, President and CEO of the Greater Houston Partnership.

Since the program’s inception, 22 neighborhood parks have been announced to receive transformative improvements as part of 50/50 Park Partners by the end of 2023. Construction is now underway on improvements to 10 of those parks, touching neighborhoods across the city.

Opportunities for additional corporate support are available, both at a program and individual park level. To learn more about 50/50 Park Partners and donor opportunities, please visit

CALGARY, Alberta, March 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pan American Energy Corp. (the “Company” or “Pan American”) (CSE: PNRG) (OTC PINK: PAANF) (FRA: SS6), is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Integrity Mining and Industrial (“IMI”), a subsidiary of Integrity Bio-Chemicals, LLC, to collaborate on evaluating IMI’s suite of sustainable green chemistries to enhance lithium recovery from petalite bearing pegmatite, spodumene and lithium bearing clays. Pan American intends to share samples from its planned exploration programs at the Horizon Lithium and Big Mack properties with IMI for testing.

A new force in the mining industry since 2019, IMI has strategically grown in a variety of regions by using dedicated research to disrupt current synthetic markets with tailored bio-based polymers and surfactants. IMI uses chemical engineering on an industrial scale to produce environmentally friendly biopolymers. They create chemistry designed to replace or enhance traditional chemistries that are not only high-performing and cost-effective but are equally sustainable. IMI is focused on the next frontier of global electrification and manufactures chemical solutions to enhance critical mineral recovery that supports the North American supply chain.

Jason Latkowcer, CEO and Director, comments, “Pan American’s alignment with IMI reflects our commitment to supporting more sustainable processes. As we move through our upcoming exploration programs, we intend to provide lithium bearing samples for testing by IMI’s floatation chemists and full team of research and development scientists at their innovation laboratory in Cresson, Texas. Our goal is to identify optimization opportunities across various lithium production processes that may benefit both the company and industry as a whole.”

James Jett, President and CEO of IMI states, “IMI is excited to partner with Pan American. In this new avenue we will be able to diversify our business from precious minerals to critical minerals and enter the next frontier for the US economy - electric and green markets. We hope to use our technical expertise, strengths in production, and scale to assist in the development of more sustainable lithium extraction processes, starting with Pan American’s properties in Canada and the United States.”
